These acclaimed and highly intense paintings reveals the hidden secrets of the heart that are always left unsaid or speak the heart out
Soketu states, "My art is a part of my spiritual journey which began a few years back . I have had some fabulous encounters with cosmic energy and I "see" that the constant flow of cosmic energy rules my life. Today I am a professional artist. My only tutor has been my inner expression. But having said that let me say - past the teaching, the books and the training, it is ultimately within the creator; who cannot be taught it is self directed . Our creation, when shared with others, we part with an intangible piece of ourselves."
He adds, "We find our darkest themes as we climb the ladder of our divine soul. More precious is when this path brings much, soul's evolution to share in a magnificent creative birth. We forget our divine origin as experiences condition us". I have attempted to express on canvas with humility and thirst for more, creative inspirations of soul's evolution, letting off the mask of tradition to rescue the inner innocence, the breath within me to reach out to the source of energy."
